Rough terrain cannot stop the new “IO HAWK Cross”. The electric Hoverboard has rugged 8.5-inch tires which handle challenging surfaces such as sand, pavement, and hills with ease, even where classic Hoverboards reached their limits. For sophisticated handling the “IO HAWK Cross” is equipped with large solid rubber tires – instead of air-filled. That ensures that the sensitive control module is not affected by uneven air pressure.
However, not only in terms of off-road capabilities the electric scooter can score.
The IO Hawk Cross can also connect to your smartphone and act as a wireless speaker when you relax somewhere or whilst rolling down the street. This way you can directly stream your music from your smartphone and get lost in the all new IO HAWK experience.
Another new feature is the brand new IO HAWK app, which will be available on GooglePlaystore and Apple Appstore. It provides information about the current speed, distance traveled, the total kilometers driven, settings for the speed mode, the battery status and also provides a track log, which shows your route in Google Maps.
The electric scooter can be easily switched on and off via the App.
Sascha Arndt, CEO of IO HAWK, shows himself delighted:”With our new product we aimed to realize all the things that our former successful model, as well as almost all other hoverboards on the market, were not able to do, which is driving on uneven terrain. Furthermore we equipped the IO HAWK Cross with all safety relevant things for the legal use on public roads, so that you can attach a license plate holder and additional light. Here we are currently still negotiating about permission in Germany based on the regulation for mobility support devices.”
Manuel Wieler, Business Development Manager of IO HAWK is very keen as well:”We put a lot of effort and energy in our new product. We worked many months with different designers to create an amazing product, which fully meets our high requirements on such a device!”
The “IO HAWK Cross” is equipped with a lithium-ion battery with 36 V and 4.3A, providing enough power for a range of up to 20 km and a top speed of 15 km/h. The Scooter is splash-resistant IPX4 certified which ensures that the high-quality technology is optimally protected when the driver is surprised by a small rain shower. Next to it the IO Hawk Cross has passed the UL2272 certification which is currently one of the highest industry safety standards for hoverboards. The UL Mark is a globally known and recognized certification, awarded to products that pass several tests and comprehensive reviews of representative product samples and so meet the stringent requirements of UL (Underwriters Laboratories).
